The Adele Diet
Posted On Jun 28, 2016
The difference between 21 Adele and 25 Adele in terms of weight is astounding. We couldn’t help but wonder what her uber-slimming secret was. It wasn’t that she was a rich pop star with a personal trainer, it was actually a diet that focuses on sirtuin proteins.
Adele’s weight loss was the result of the Sirtfood Diet, which activates the “skinny gene” or SIRT1, and plays a role in metabolism and appetite control. The Sirtfood Diet limits calories and focuses on key foods that are said to boost the sirtuin metabolic regulators. For example, resveratrol, which is found in red wines, is an activator of the sirtuin pathways. Red wine diet? Count me in.
Other examples of Sirtfoods include walnuts, turmeric, strawberries, soy, arugula, red onion, red chicory, parsley, medjool dates, matcha green tea, kale, coffee, cacao, celery, capers, buckwheat, chili, and extra-virgin olive oil.
The diet plan Adele followed lowered calories to 1,000 a day for the first seven days, then increases to 1,500 calories a day, concentrating on 20 key foods. The diet calls for several green juices a day and one solid meal. Later on it advances to three meals a day.
Should you try this diet plan? The calorie counting and the allotted food list is very restrictive being that there are no processed foods, added sugars, or refined flours. Whether the list of 20 Sirtfoods will actually boost your “skinny gene” or not is uncertain, but the program appears to be neither dangerous nor costly. And it is Adele approved!
Bring on the red wine, the chocolate and the coffee, we are in!
